Cyclist Laughs in Face of Armstrong's Toughness

If you've ever flown facefirst into a ravine, raise your hand. You there? Yes. It hurt, right? And you died from massive internal injuries, right? And are currently dead? ↵

↵Good. Clearly, you are not cyclist Frank Schleck, who improbably survived a fall into a ravine after crashing over a guard rail at 40 miles an hour during the Tour de Switzerland. Remember: you can watch and laugh, because he didn't die, an important rule when watching people eat it on bikes or skateboards on the internet. ↵

↵Schleck, who after the race attributed his good luck to a charm his mother gave him to wear, actually finished the race with little more than cuts and bruises.↵
